A crying baby is enough to drive new parents insane. It seems no matter what tricks you try, the baby won’t calm down. Thankfully, pediatrician Robert Hamilton demonstrates a simple soothing technique he has discovered over the year. By holding the baby forward at a 45 degree angle with their arms crossed with one hand and supporting their butt with the other, he shows how a crying baby can instantly be calmed down. This video has instantly gone viral with over 1.7 million views!

It goes without saying, but is worth repeating: Don’t shake your baby! This technique is about softly rocking your baby and softly wiggling their booty.
